    I love this thread, so much fun. I had always wanted an EB for over 10 years, and I always told my hubby that if I ever got lucky enough to own one, I wanted a male and I would call him Bulldozer (Dozer for short), so when I finally got him, I knew that was his name. I also like d the name Tonka, so when my hubby said he couldn't leave his sister behind, we took both home. I was going to call her Tonka, but hubby and my son said it was a boys name. I suggested Tanka, but they didn't like it. So the we started thinking of girl/boy pairs names like Elvis and Priscilla, Jagger and Bianca, Rocky and Adrienne, or Rocky and Roxie, Diesel and Diva, which gave me the idea to keep with the letter B. We had our Bulldozer and I liked the name Bergen, for my home town in Norway, but the guys had other ideas. My next favourite name was Ladybug (Bugg for short), but then I saw the name Blossom and fell in love with it, plus she was as cute and pretty as a little flower Blossom also she is mostly white, and when she gets excited or warm, her pink skin shows through her fur, and it reminds us of an Apple Blossom which is my favourite tree, and my son also loves the Asian culture and Apple Blossoms represent the Asian culture.

    one of wifey's favorite TV series, SUITS. One of the main character is a witty, debonaire lawyer named Harvey Reginald Specter. Wife loves the show so much that she demanded the name Harvey Reginald Specter on his AKC certificate.

    When we got Monty he was called Meaty but looking at him, it just didn't seem dignified enough. So we came up with Monty as it was close to his original name and we thought, suited him so much better. Plus, it reminds me of home!

    I wasn't going too name him Chunky White but, I kept aggravating my niece who went with me to pick him up that i was going to call him that and it stuck. The name actually came from chunky white chicken salad that my family always bought from Publix while living in miami. Everyone thought i was joking about naming him that

    Emmitt & Rogan. The main decision had to have human names. I named Emmitt after Dallas Cowboys Emmitt Smith. Weesie name Rogan. Rogan, what is a Rogan. An uncle on her family tree. No that won't work I will have to explain that name every time I say Rogan. She was dead set on Rogan. So I tell everyone Rogan was Weesie's third husband. It worked out.

    When I saw Maude,as a little pup-for some reason the name just popped in my head.Some people think she she named after Bea Arthur,who had a show by that name. Martha is named from a cartoon-Martha Speaks(a dog that talks) because she was a very vocal pup! Lizzie was named after the first dog my husband and got as soon as we were married-her name was Elizabeth Taylor.

    Usko means "Faith" and his morher Is Lempi "Love" ja father Toivo "Hope".....so you may see why....
    Voitto means Victory and since we like to go to dog shows it just means that we will always take home the victory....

    I love everyone's naming stories. Ever since I met my husband, he talked about getting an EB. We were watching the newer Sherlock Holmes movie and Sherlock had a bulldog named Gladstone. So he decided that if we got a bulldog, it would be Gladstone. Well we picked out Frank and as soon as we got him home, we tried calling him Gladstone and it just didn't work. He reminded us more of the Will Farrell character in "Old School" so he became Frank the Tank.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!
